Life in the Tennessee mountain village is all too rmal, seemingly unaffected by the war. It is there that John Thomas Rourke finds himself in the middle of a mass suicide pact... and is expected to participate! While battles rage and blizzards roar, Rourke fights to escape. He must go on-he is The Survivalist.
